Article of the Week
High stakes decision-making causes a little more cheating, a lot less charity
New research from the University of Exeter and the London School of Economics looks at the extent to which the "moral licensing" can transform how employees self-govern their actions over a course of time. Honourable acts could lead workers to behave more selfishly later on. The research shows they leverage feelings of virtuousness from having resisted a large temptation to act selfishly on a different occasion. The findings have important implications for how companies deal with corporate misconduct and unethical actions.
